Ingame Description Edit
"Provides a great amount of energy generating steam by burning combustible materials."
General Information Edit
Power Plants are energy production buildings researched in the Stone Workshop, allowing the player to produce large amounts of energy fairly quickly at the cost of building materials (-5 wood and -5 stone income). While they are larger and more expensive than Mills, they are more space efficient and do not have a 4-tile spacing requirement.
Tips & Strategy Edit
Being the only building in the game so far to cost wood and stone income, it is important that the player checks that this building is within their means, lest they lose half of this building's substantial cost for nothing.
Mills are far more efficient in terms of maintenance cost, but take twice as many workers per energy gained, so Power Plants are recommended when there is little space to build and both Wood and Stone income are high enough to offset the cost.
